added site-int.fs and, more importantly, support for it.
Fixed bugs in SPARC CACHE_FLUSH

    1: Gforth is a fast and portable implementation of the ANS Forth
    2: language. This represents the present state of the Gforth project
    3: whose goal is the development of a standard implementation model for
    4: ANS Forth. Gforth supports indirect threading on every machine
    5: supported by GCC, and direct threading on several popular
    6: architectures. Gforth is distributed under the GNU General Public
    7: license (see COPYING).
    8: 
    9: Read INSTALL for installation instructions. Mail
   10: gforth-bugs@mips.complang.tuwien.ac.at if you have problems.  To start
   11: the system, just say `gforth' (after installing it).
   12: 
   13: If you want to work on Gforth, mail me. Tasks to be done can be found
   14: in ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there,
   15: it's ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are
   16: doing. The most important tasks IMO are the missing ANS Forth words,
   17: the documentation and the foreign language interface for C.
   18:
